Bloomberg recently launched a new California chapter of the Bloomberg Women’s Buy-Side Network (BWBN), a group focused on elevating women in the asset management industry.
The California chapter is part of Bloomberg’s growing Women’s Buy-Side Network community, which now includes chapters in Brazil, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore. The mission of the network is to be inspired by the future of investing and to inspire the next generation of women buy-side leaders.
The California chapter — the first BWBN chapter in the U.S. — recently hosted its first event at the impressive new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles. The evening’s special guest was Ellen Carr, Principal and Fixed Income Portfolio Manager at Barksdale Investment Management, Adjunct Professor of Finance at Columbia University’s Business School and co-author of Undiversified: The Big Gender Short in Investment Management.
